About the Artist

I am self diagnosed ADHD. It results in my creativity that metamorphosis into my art. My one grief is that I never really emphasized enough in one media. This I believe kept me from excelling to the point of being a financially successful studio artist. I was born in Paducah, raised in Symsonia. I think I was born an artist.

About the Work

I like to make things that people says is neat, cool, etc. Unfortunately I compromise to consumer demand and produce mundane bathroom art as well. If it was up to me I would only produce the odd stuff floating around in my head. My art is heavily influenced by comic books, Sci-fi, fantasy , and dark humor.
